Although Italy boasts a plethora of ‘art cities’, few people are likely to list Milan as one of them. Known as the capital of fashion, design and business, the city also hosts an unexpected treasure trove of artistic marvels. As well as famed and fabled masterpieces and monuments, Milan is also home to the Duomo, La Scala Opera House, Leonardo’s Last Supper, Castello Sforzesco, imposing Romanesque churches, museums brimming over with priceless artworks as well as the recent introduction of some amazing contemporary architecture.
Boasting two thousand years of history, it is inevitable that Milan often presents individuals suffering from motor disabilities with several structural obstacles. In fact, insofar as its historical buildings are in question, with a view to safeguarding its monuments, it has not always been possible to modify main access points meaning that separate entrances, which should not in any way be viewed as discriminatory, have been created. In the descriptive texts, the notes highlighted in blue refer to these and other information of practical interest.
The guide for special needs travelers by Where and SEA aims to show you that side of Milan, and lots more besides, i.e. an accessible Milan.
On the pages of the below PDF you will find a collection of must-visit museums and tourist attractions that are accessible to everyone, plus a series of useful information detailing how to get around Expo Milano 2015. This project was developed by SEA Milan Airports in collaboration with Where®, a leading brand in visitor publications, to facilitate accessible tourism and offer concrete support to individuals affected by motor disabilities. Additionally, it also represents one of SEA’s core values, namely passenger care and satisfaction.
